Herefordshire Summer Cross Country series – 26 July 2017

The last race of the Herefordshire Summer Cross Country series, held in the magnificent surroundings of Shobdon Court, escaped the showers and attracted a near record field of 178 runners.  Despite the great surroundings and pleasant weather, it’s a tough course, with lots of changes in terrain and gradients, until the final stages where there was the long climb up between the wood and the field, and then the long grassy avenue down to the finish/end of lap 1. 

Malvern Joggers were well represented by Nic Dauncey finishing in a time of 35:19, Matthew Lancett (37:57), Adam Grant (38:47), Sam Eden (39:40), Natalie Bennett (40:08), Martin Reed-Darby (40:53), Paul Newman (44:19), Roger Sherriff (44:25), Roy Hart (46:12), Rhian Protheroe (47:16), Amanda Duncan (48:09), Julie Caseley (48:13), Andy Campbell (50:07), Helen Ried (52:24), Viv Tolley (52:53) and Dave Brett (53:46).

Well done to Natalie Bennett and Julie Caseley who won a gold medal (FV35) and silver medal (FV55) respectively for the race series.
